Just before the match, Lalit Modi said he is satisfied with the way the tournament went.

"You could not have asked for better. What a tournament -- lots of excitement. Mumbai Indians won most of their matches but nobody knew which three teams would go to the semi-finals till the last game.

"Thank-you cricket fans of the country and abroad, you have made all these possible," he said.
